    in Finance

    We're going to be interviewing Small Business Attorney Elizabeth Potts Weinstein who recently presented a webinar on "Can I Use This Pic?" about images on the internet.

    As a small business attorney, Elizabeth Potts Weinstein helps entrepreneurs, artists, coaches, and consultants find simplicity in the law, so they can get back to spending their time helping their clients and changing the world.

    She helps clients: 
    - Get unstuck from undecided legal issues, so you can keep moving forward on what’s really important. 
    - Review contracts and agreements, so they protect you and are in alignment with your goals, business type, personality, and style. 
    - Offer a legal eye on your business situation, looking for what you “don’t know that you don’t know,” so you can avoid getting into an accidental legal mess. 
    - Figure out the right business structure (sole proprietor, partnership, LLC, corporation) for your needs and future plans. 
    - Get advice about what to do if someone is stealing your copyrights or trademarks, or what to do if you get a cease & desist letter.

    This should be exciting.

    If you’re not familiar with Ms. Stewart, she is the author of “The 3rd Eye”, the original source material and basis for the Matrix and Terminator franchises.   Ms. Stewart has registered her work with the  US Patent and Trademark office, and they validate she is the sole, legal owner of all IP, trademarks, copyrights, movies, DVDs, merchandise, and all other derivative products and services connected to both franchises.   

    Her work was stolen by Warner Bros and Fox, and she was never compensated nor credited for her creative, protected expressions. Instead of compensating her, Warner Bros and Fox paid a team of attorneys to “represent” her, and they intentionally sabotaged her original copyright infringement case in California.

    When she found out in 2007 that Jonathon Lubell, the lead attorney that was supposed to “represent” her had been disbarred and convicted of stealing money from a client, she initiated a lawsuit in Salt Lake City where she lived at the time.

    Ms. Stewart has since waged a 7 year battle in the US District Court in Salt Lake City alleging fraud, negligence, civil rights violations, due process violations, and a host of other civil and criminal violations. The named defendants include Jonathon Lubell and 3 other attorneys. However, Warner Bros and Fox are ultimately liable, as they paid for the defendants to sabotage her case.   In addition to paying off the defendants, Warner Bros and Fox paid off other law enforcement and regulatory agency personnel, US Patent and Trademark lawyers and examiners, court clerks, various other attorneys, and other co-conspirators,  through a multi-million dollar slush fund.
